Incident



Through an agency outside himself, the hood of the boy's car flew up and wrapped around the windshield.

Neither he nor his friend was hurt, but to get home they had to stick their head out the door windows as they drove.

God damn it! -- an imprecation his father, the rabbi, hurled when he found out.

The boy, who died before he had children, retracted his head and quivered.
